“Veterans, politicians and local residents gathered in Red Run Park Wednesday evening to rededicate Rouzerville’s World War II memorial only a few days after the 70th anniversary of D-Day.
Part of the project included moving the World War II memorial — consisting of a World War II era cannon and a bronze plaque — from its location between two homes in Rouzerville to the Sept. 11, 2001, memorial at the park. The second part was refurbishing the memorial, which included rebronzing the plaque and replacing the equipment that attaches it to the stone display.”
One of the bronzes commemorates “All those members of the Special Air Service Regiment who have died in the service of their country and have given their lives to uphold the principles of freedom and justice”.
